What are the Factors Propelling the Global Cell Counting Market?

The deployment of cell counting equipment and supplies was significantly influenced during the Covid-19 pandemic as there was a widespread emergency for the detection of infection and the spread of novel Coronavirus in the initial days. Later too, cell counting technology was more widely used during the pandemic since osteopenia and lymphopenia were thought to be possible COVID-19 markers. As a result, the COVID-19 outbreak had a very significant effect on the expansion of the global cell counting market key trends and opportunities were witnessed.

The growing use of Bio-rad cell counters in several end-use verticals, including research, healthcare, and industrial applications, is responsible for the segment's significant market advantage. Numerous research fields, including cancer biology, immunology, and neurology, are using electronic cell counting devices more often, which presents exponential growth prospects for the global cell counting business sector.

Also during the projection period, biotechnology and the pharmaceutical industries are expected to see exponential growth and are anticipated to boost the demand for cell counting in tandem. For instance, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine provided funding of nearly US$ Million in 2021 for the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for research in Stem Cell applications and development of regenerative medicines at UCLA.

Moreover, government programs to support cell therapy research are expanding the market's potential possibilities in recent years. Additionally, recent increases in financing for stem cell research in several countries have further expedited the global cell counting market growth.

What are the Prevailing Opportunities in the Global Cell Counting Market?

By the end of 2020, as per the estimates from the WHO update, the number of people living with HIV throughout the world reached close to 37.7 million. The need for manual cell counters and consumables is thus anticipated to rise as infectious illness incidence rise in emerging economies. Therefore, it is anticipated that factors such as the rising incidence of chronic illnesses, expanding technical developments, and new releases in the global cell counting market would propel the industry's expansion through the forecast years.

Automated cell counters that are presently available in the market for sale have made it easier to precisely determine the stem cell viability and nucleated cell content in cord blood or human bone marrow. Fluorescence imaging and other aspects are also being used more often to measure GFP efficiency for transfecting stem cell operations resulting in a very lucrative opportunity for both existing and new healthcare equipment manufacturers entering the global cell counting market.

Additionally, the introduction of innovative items is expected to spur the cell counting market growth in the coming days. For instance, eNuvio introduced a reusable 3D cell culture microplate in 2020. This cutting-edge plate enables researchers to create embryoid bodies, which are a prerequisite for growing bigger organoids or spheroids from stem cells.

What are the Factors Hampering the Global Cell Counting Market?

Unfortunately, the higher hemocytometer price and disposable cell counter price is expected to hamper the market opportunities for the manufacturers dealing in this particular sector. On the other hand, the higher price of sophisticated cell counting methods and hematology analyzer product recalls are anticipated to restrain the overall global cell counting market trends.

These tools count the cells in a specific culture solution before adding them to the bioreactors or fermenters to produce the desired product. Over the upcoming years, it is projected that any constraint in the production and sourcing of such biologics created by bioprocessing in these bioreactors or fermenters would pose a major challenge to the adoption of cell counting techniques.
